  1. Yes, it was learned that the TIA can do better for sound if more memory is available, which the 7800 has. Every game that uses only TIA sounds is very different on the 7800 when compared to their 2600 counterparts. Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., etc. You can learn more about the 7800 on this video. If I remember right, Steve does explain this during the video (at 33:44).
  2. That is an interesting-looking controller. I don't think I've ever seen it before.
  3. They came up with that acronym for the comics and the "organization" that team worked for. Truthfully, it fit Atari at at the time. I have all the comics, the ones that came with the games and the official ones DC published. I discovered them quite a few years ago and bought the entire collection. They were a fun read. 🙂
  4. Yes, that's how that works on this game.
  5. Oh yes. It's awesome! I've been asking Bob to make a 7800 version of Phoenix also. The only home port is the 2600 version, which is pretty good, but the 7800 can really get a more arcade-accurate version.
  6. I enjoyed watching this video. Rather interesting and sad at the same time. I remember going to Incredible Universe here in Miami and all these other stores. Even Radio Shack back then!
  7. You should. I always enjoy your feedback to Ferg!
  8. I'm eagerly waiting for mine. Thanks for making this video. 🙂
  9. I hope they fix whatever problems they had for the next game. I had to clear the cache, try three browsers, etc. I wanted to get the VIP edition but I kept getting an error message, so I got the Collector's edition instead.
  10. I know! I was there, ready to make my purchase and, all of a sudden, I see 23 hours added to the clock! 😄
  11. Believe me, nothing would make me happier! I'd LOVE to be able to play Cristal Castles for the 2600 in true Trak-Ball mode!
  12. Wait, someone actually hacked Cristal Castles on the 2600 to work with the Trak-Ball controller? I though that game needed an entire rewrite to accomplish that.
